Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the Round

Pattern Description:

The Cable Owl Gloves have been newly revised to include all adult sizes, ranging from XS to XL. The edge variations for the gloves include the ribbed edge, and rolled edge and the newly added garter stitch edge (my personal favorite).

These gloves are worked in the round. The pattern was created using the magic loop method; however, it can be altered for 4 double pointed needles.
The cable panel for these gloves is completely written out, line by line. There is no chart needed to follow the pattern.

I have a little quilt shop that specializes in small cuts of colorful quilting fabric but knitting was always my first love. I started designing glove patterns since I couldn't find patterns for what I wanted. I am currently working on glove patterns with lots of sizing options.... much better results when knitting for large varieties of hand sizes.
